SCHUYLKILL HAVEN - There aren't enough adjectives to describe Hunter Bordner's pitching performance April 12.
The Tri-Valley junior tossed a three-hit shutout and struck out 14 as the Dawgs blanked Schuylkill Haven 4-0 in a Schuylkill League Division II contest.
The victory is the seventh straight for Tri-Valley (7-1, 5-1 D-II), which moves into first place in Division II with the win. The loss was the Hurricanes' first of the season.
TOWER CITY - Kylie Doyle and Cassidy Pinchorski recorded two RBIs apiece as Williams Valley pulled away from Marian 10-1 in a Schuylkill League Division II-III crossover game April 14.
Both teams entered undefeated.
Pinchorski struck out 12, fanning five of the last six batters she faced. Pinchorski recorded eight strikeouts against the bottom of Marian's order. Pinchorski also finished with three hits, with Doyle adding a pair of singles.
MANDATA - Cory Warford blasted a two-run home run into a strong wind, snapping a 4-4 tie and leading Line Mountain to a 6-4 Tri-Valley League victory over East Juniata on Monday.
Warford also worked the final two innings on the mound in relief of starter and winner Kellan Masser, pitching out of a bases-loaded jam in the seventh to preserve the victory.
The victory, over one of the league's preseason favorites, is one Eagles' head coach Jon Raker thinks will help his team through a busy stretch of games over the next few weeks.
U. Dauphin 18
ELIZABETHVILLE - Madison Crum-Berger won the shot put for the Trojans' only event win as Upper Dauphin (0-3, 0-3 TVL) was overwhelmed by the Wildcats in a Tri-Valley League meet. The Trojans also fell to Millersburg 108 - 41.
Sch. Haven 72
Pine Grove 68
PINE GROVE - Owen Pothering (800, 1,600, 1,600 relay, 3,200 relay) won four times to pace the Hurricanes to a thrilling Division II victory over the Cardinals at Cardinal Stadium.
HEGINS - Katie Whelski and Haley Nestor didn't have big offensive seasons for Williams Valley last spring.
They made some clutch plays and delivered some clutch hits - especially during the run to the PIAA Class A state championship - but overall didn't finish with high batting averages.
Whelski and Nestor took a major step toward having a larger impact at the plate April 9 against Schuylkill League Division II rival Tri-Valley.
MIDDLEPORT - The way Anthony Agosti runs the bases and shags fly balls in center field, you can't tell the Marian senior suffered a broken right fibula in January.
Roughly three months later, Agosti is back on the field and a major contributor to a very potent Colts' offense.
That was the case April 9, when Agosti went 2-for-2 with two doubles, two runs scored and two RBIs in Marian's 11-1, five-inning victory over Williams Valley in a Schuylkill League Division II contest at Schuylkill Valley Stadium.
